Pink Gin lovers rejoice, there’s a new drink on the market to satisfy your cravings for aesthetically pleasing liquor.
Whilst marketed as rosé gin, this is perhaps a little decpetive, as there is very little wine in the final product, and does nothing to make the gin pink. Instead, rosé wine is distilled and combined with juniper, mint, and a range of spices, before being mixed with grape skin extract to give the gin it’s colour. When you consider that other coloured gins consist of distilled vodka with a form of colourant, the USP of rosé wine seems to diminish in significance.
The gin, costing $34 a bottle, has been produced at Wölffer Estate, a vineyard found in the Hamptons. Given how pretty their bottles of cider are, and the popularity of their rosé wine, it hardly comes as a surprise that the estate has an interest in further catering towards appearance based consumerism using one of their most renowned products. Be warned though, when mixed into cocktails, this gin will most likely lose its colour
Alas, the product is only available in the US, and even there is sold out in stores. So, if you’re keen to get your hands on a bottle, make sure you pre-order it online soon.
